As a Baby Boomer From the 60's Now IN His 60's...Page 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)

I've spent many an evening comparing rock-show creds with pals


Speaking of rock-show creds, saw something on a facebook wall of a friend yesterday referencing the granddaddy of all rock-show creds. It said something along the lines of "This Day In History 50 Years Ago - Woodstock!" He was a little younger, so I told him Woodstock was in August, and that this year would really be marking the 48th anniversary. Do you remember, in the lead up to the exact day in Back To The Future when they arrived in the year 2015, there were all kind of false flags, from 2012 going forward, saying today marks the day. Well, hold tight! I have a feeling, for Baby Boomers, the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock is about to receive the same treatment.

I'm a baby boomer.
I remember Woodstock.
There is an anniversary being planned for 2019.


Not sure what your friend was referencing.

The thing that impresses me about WS, there wasn't nearly the amount of communication technology there is today, to let people know "This is the place to be". No GPS to find the place, no buzzfeed, twitter, cellphones to use along the way, no podcasts to catch later, no flash mobs....and yet stoned hippies were able to find out it was going on and where, typically from some flier on a coffee house wall.

a lack of communication technology compared to today, and yet people talk about that concert more than perhaps any one that has taken place in the age of email and other ways news spreads fast. in that way, technology isn't helping us automatically make public gatherings at that level.

Ah, the summer of ’69. It was a very good year, as Frank liked to say.

I had just graduated high school, and was spending the summer in Omaha, Nebraska doing construction work, making a little money to pay or help pay for college that fall. Woodstock made the national news when the crowd became huge, and that was the first I heard of it. I had an immediate urge to drop everything and go, but it was a long way away, I had a job and needed the money, and I would have been very late to the party by the time I could have gotten there.

Still, if I had it to do over again …

Combining the original topic - Will people keep pushing the online dating window out to greater and greater ages

with the splinter topic that emerged -

Classic rock artists we've seen in concert

I submit this ->>> http://kawarthanow.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/hawkstone-studios-recording-session-01.jpg


Most have no idea who this guy (First Row - Far Left), who still does roughly 75 concerts/year, even is.

However, if given one of his old album covers, you'd realize he's an instantly recognizable 70's era superstar.

Conclusion: Age apparently isn't gonna stop anybody from.....anything!

Another big difference is people who bought admission tickets to Woodstock or any other concert weren't paying hundreds of dollars. Concert tickets were often around 5 or 6 dollars. There was no Ticketmaster or any other on line ticket outlet that charged an arm and a leg for tickets, like there is now. The hippie movement didn't stop rock music from just being another big, profit driven, corporate business-the opposite of what musicians publicly professed to be about back then, and "sticking it to the Man". And now, peace signs and "Make love, not war" has been replaced by a leader who preaches hatred and discrimination, and is adored by millions.
